The blueprints icon should be available earlier

Post by Pennervomland »

Right now, when you research Construction robots you "unlock" blueprints, the blueprint book, delete-prints and upgrade-prints (no idea how they are actually called) in your slot-bar on the side.

I feel like you should be able to get that from the start. It's really annoying how an empty blueprint, that you might just use to count, takes away a place in your inventory, same with the other ones and I use it for myself without robots too. So I don't feel like there is a need to lock that feature until you have the robots

Once a shortcut has been unlocked it is available in all future games. So the problem you describe only happens to new players or if you completely reinstall the game.

OH ok didn't know that. I guess I'll just play to that stage. That's actually pretty cool. Neat

Additionally, `/unlock-shortcut-bar` can be used to unlock the shortcuts at any time.

They're also all available for brand new players from one of the top right buttons, and through keyboard shortcuts ?

Yes to both the blueprint library icon in the top and the keyboard shortcuts.
